Interjections ESL Games, Worksheets and Activities

Interjections Race

ESL Interjections Game - Reading, Matching, Listening and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 25 minutes

In this free interjections activity, students play a game where they race to match interjections with sentences. Divide the students into two groups (A and B) and give each student a corresponding worksheet. Working with another member of their group, the students match each interjection on their worksheet with an appropriate meaning. Afterwards, review the correct answers with each group. Next, each student pairs up with someone from the other group. The students then take it in turns to read the sentences on their worksheet to their partner who has to find and provide a suitable interjection to begin each sentence. If both students agree it's correct, the student writes the interjection before the sentence. If not, the student asks their partner for other suggestions. The race continues until all the sentences on both worksheets have been matched with an interjection. When a pair thinks they have finished, they put up their hands. If their answers are correct, they win. If not, the race continues to find a winner. All the pairs should continue until they have matched all the interjections. Finally, go through the correct answers with the class.

Common Interjections

ESL Interjections Worksheet - Reading, Matching, Writing and Speaking Activity - Intermediate (B1) - 25 minutes

This engaging interjections worksheet helps students to learn and practice some interjections that are commonly used in the English language. Give each student a copy of the two-page worksheet. The students begin by reading about interjections and their uses. Next, the students match interjections with sentence halves. The students then move on to match each interjection with its correct use. Next, the students work with a partner and compare the interjections with words used in their own language to express the same feelings and emotions shown in Exercise B to see if they are the same or different. The students also discuss other interjections they use to express feelings and emotions. Afterwards, review the students' answers as a class. After that, the students begin each sentence with a suitable interjection from a box. In the last exercise, students write down eight interjections from the worksheet and create a suitable following sentence for each one. Afterwards, they read their sentences to a partner, without saying the interjection to see if they can guess what it is.

Interjections Bingo

ESL Interjections Game - Reading and Listening Activity - Intermediate (B1) - 20 minutes

In this interjections game, students play bingo by matching interjections with sentences. Divide the students into groups of 12 and give each student in the group a bingo card. You may wish to take on the role of the bingo caller yourself, or have an extra student take on the roll per group. You or a student then reads a sentence at random from the caller's sheet, saying the word 'blank' where the interjection should be and putting a tick next to the sentence to show it has been read out. The students look at their bingo cards. If they have a suitable interjection that can go in the place of the ‘blank’, they cross it off. The game continues until a student has crossed off all the interjections on their card. When this happens, the student shouts 'Bingo!' The student then reads out the interjections they crossed off. If they match with the sentences that were ticked on the caller's sheet, the student wins the game. Play several rounds, making sure students receive a different bingo card each time. If you have a large class or want to give students more practice with the interjections, have the students play the game in groups of four with students taking it in turns to be the bingo caller.
